Blue- That is great your hysteroscopy came back good and you are all ready to go!

Pocos – Awesome ER!! Will you get a report tomorrow on how many were mature and fertilized tomorrow? That pineapple mint juice sounds good, how do you make it?

Tiger – I hope your RE saw some fabulous numbers today, even though we can’t!

Ninde- I am no stranger to hot flashes either!! Never had to strip the bed though, you’ve beat me there!

We- Glad you are hanging in, how exciting getting everything all ready for the girls!

Hope- Everything sounds great!! You might have posted this and I may have missed it, but do you know what you team your little one is?

Sunshine – I hope you are feeling better.

Kay – GOOD LUCK!!! I will be stalking.

Kynlee --- YAY great beta!!! My u/s is one day before yours, which I find a little weird since you are a few days ahead of me. I also feel like it is forever away! I am nervous it is going to be too early to see/hear a heartbeat, then I will be panicking…..

AFM - Just working and staying busy. Will be traveling almost the full month of August. Happy my kids will make it too 2 of the 4 August trips I have. Then school starts again.. YEah for us! I have decided to wait until November for my next FET Cycle. I don't want to rush another cycle in between my traveling. I will be done Nov 2nd and won't travel again until mid February so I will have time to do this cycle without worrying about traveling. I am still going to do my weekly acupuncture appointment's, this helps me relax not only to help my uterus but my mind and body!! Even through he punctured a vein (just like my last guy) so i have a huge bruise on my leg.. O'well... I try to read and catch up at least once a week, but I am cheering you all on!! Good Luck and can't wait to hear about all these babies grow!!! xoxo
Good Luck to ALL!

Kynlee - Congrats, girl! Those are great beta numbers! I bed you must be super excited about the u/s!! :D
Thanks for the prayers! Yes, they always do the egg retrievals with conscious sedation at this new clinic. My first IVF was at a different clinic, and I was completely asleep. The ER wasn't bad though, it was actually fun to watch the doctor retrieve the eggs, I could see everything on the screen :-) The ER part only took 10 min!

Ninde - Yes, fertilization report will be tomorrow! I have never watched "A gifted man", but I have a friends who absolutely loooves it!

Always Angel - Yes girl, gatorade is my best friend now LOL. Can't wait for your beta results! I am praying for a BFP for you! :D

MadameX - yes, fertilization report tomorrow! The pineapple juice with mint is great for fluid retention. I had more today.
All you need is 1/3 of a pineapple, 15 mint leaves, some ice cubes and 2 cups of water (you can add more water if you like). I sweetened mine with stevia.

Cyn22 - Thanks! I have also been doing acupuncture for a year now. I had chronic back pain and the acupuncture helped me a lot! I haven't had pain since I started with the treatment. I also have acupuncture for other things like sinuses pressure, the infertility, stress, knee pain etc LOL pretty much everything, and I love it!

AFM - Feeling sore and crampy. I had some pineapple juice with mint and chicken from boston market for dinner. Took my antibiotics and percocet, hopefully that will help with the pain. Still worried about OHSS but also amazed that I had more eggs after a protocol with less medication. :P

Kynlee- I'm over the moon you are officially pg, how are you planning on telling the family, or have you already told them?

Oh Maria- That is way too funny but it's all my fault for looking one month ahead! :oops: But although it won't be easy, we'll all try to hold down the excitement in celebrating until then!

Ninde- Clarity what's that? I have no idea what clarity even means to me anymore. :roll: I went and got a pedi/mani today and the nail tech shared all her problems with me such as the ex is not giving her child support so I asked how many kids does she have? she said five, that she had her first at 14. I said that must of been hard. I asked her how long has she been married now, she said going on 3 yrs and the guy that's she's with just got parole. I didn't probe to find out why he was in jail, but I know she has a 4 month old baby with him. Was I envious? not really, because she has her hands completely full with 5 kids and she's at least working somewhere to provide for them. She said she's trying to talk him into maritial counceling, but work has kept her from doing that. I said request off, set a date soon and make sure he agrees to it soon before you both change your mind about doing that but, you have to do what's best for you, if you don't feel right in this relationship and especially if he's abusive you must get out. So that's was my drama for the day, and you know 90 percent of the time the nail techs don't even talk to their customers...

Thanks Girls, I am super excited yet nervous about the U/S of course I want to see my little bean but I think I am reading to much on different sites where girls are saying they think 6 weeks is to early for a U/S and they had miscarriages.. What are your girls thoughts?

Madamex- My U/S is the 1st only because that was my original date with the Dr if I got a bfn, they just changed into a U/S appt instead of waiting... I wish I could wait till 8 weeks to have it I am kinda nervous, but I guess you never stop worrying till you hold the baby in your arms :)

Sunshine-you are too funny. Any excuse to celebrate, ha ha ha!!! I do appreciate you thinking of me and of my birthday a full month early :D I thought that was just too cute. Sounds like your nail tech has her hands full. God knows, I've heard my share of major drama in peoples lives. It never ceases to amaze me. But everytime I think I have it tough all I have to do is think of one of those stories and I quickly give thanks to God for the life I have and what he has given me. I have a very good friend of mine who has a daughter with CP (cerebral palsy). When I had my son 13 years ago and decided to go back to work, I actually took care of her daughter. That is how we met, I was her daughters nurse. Well, 12 years later we are still very good friends. This weekend she told me that her daughter was back in the hospital yet again. She is a miracle child. The doctors didn't think she would live days let alone 25 years. We all give thanks for everyday she is here with us. But, my poor friend has it really hard. They are constantly in and out of the hospital. Her daughter is fed through a PEG tube. Due to severe seizures she no longer is able to see or hear and she us not able yo speak. She has been wheelchair bound since she was little and requires nursing care around the clock. When I think of someone having it rough, I think of my poor friend who's daughters life hangs in the balance everyday. We have so much to be grateful for in our lives. Sometimes we forget that we don't need to look to far. Sorry for the depressing story but my dear friend has really been on my mind this week. Please say a prayer for them.

Maria- No need to apologize, your story speaks volumes as to how so many out there truly suffer, even after 25 years of suffering. I will keep your friend's daughter in my prayers, I know she's grateful that her baby fought strongly but at the same time it must be challenging at times. We have to be thankful with what we have in our lives and I know others out there who have it much more harder then me but sometimes I do wish I could understand God's plans and I know it's His own timing. I would like to think I have some control but I realize in IVF or life itself nothing is ever guaranteed. Life is unfair but it doesn't mean we have to give up. I think it makes us stronger and we may fall many times but we get back up and climb until we reach the top of the mountain. Maybe my miscarriage happened for a reason, I would like to think God will never give us anything we cannot handle. Dh gets mad when he hears me say that because he thinks we should have more control over the situation. He thinks of this as shortcomings but not once has he ever blamed it on me. I am blessed with a wonderful husband going on 13 yrs. I talked w/ dh tonight about our plans, and he thinks we'll know more in August as to what direction we are going but right now it's all a blur.
